Take No Prisoners


I created The War on Bullshit while completing my PhD. It helped keep me sane during a horrible, frustrating experience. Bullshit is a ubiquitous social phenomenon that’s causing serious problems for humanity. Bullshit is not untruth but a message conveyed regardless of truth. It’s not that the bullshitter is necessarily trying to deceive but that he or she does not care about the truth. Graduate school is remarkably high in bullshit.

Now a professor – busy with other writing projects and much less frustrated – I don’t do much blogging anymore. Feel free to search or browse the archives. Here are some of my favourite posts:
